If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its data inside a database and the more substantial the website becomes, the more info it gathers. For instance, if you start an e-store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script uses shall increase as you add more items. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they submit, the bigger the database. If your Internet sites gain popularity or you would like to add more content, this may become a problem if your web hosting account has limited database space. What the particular effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the website can perform correctly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the internet site can be displayed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your entire site could simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use a cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared hosting accounts on it are handled by a different cluster of web servers, so we've chosen not to limit the total space they may take.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As our semi-dedicated server accounts employ an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide limitless storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account without compromising the quality of the service. On the contrary, the efficiency is improved, due to the fact that a whole cluster of servers handles only MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We can keep growing the cluster storage and the computing power by attaching new web servers and hard drives, so you will never be limited in terms of the size of any one of your databases. You may freely export or import any MySQL database via the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel or you may ask our technicians to aid you with this task if you have no previous experience and you are not sure how to proceed.
